Succotash 1970

In 1969 – 1971, a merry band of brothers knows as Succotash traveled from Colorado College to London to play rock n’ roll, blues, country and any other good music we could find. In 1971, a gifted engineer recorded 7 tracks with the band in a small 8-track studio in South London. The tracks were later mixed and mastered at CBS (Columbia) Records Studios in London.

Thanks to the Everist family for being the keepers of the flame – all 7 tracks were digitally remastered by Evan Everist in 2009 as a 60th birthday present to his proud papa.

Thanks to John Everist, Harry Castleman, Ken Ormond and Henri Schauffler for a great ride and some great music. And special thanks to John Kammer for believing in us and keeping the flame alive, even when the rest of us were beginning to flicker out.

  2. “Hey you guys!” We’re all like “Spanky and Our Gang” in the 20’s except for our collective sense of humor. All ya all got serious and grew up while I stayed with Froggie and Buckwheat at the clubhouse. Hey! We’re waiting for all ya all. Come’on back and set a spell. The Love is still there. “This place has everything. Come on, I show you”….Jim Morrison (too).
